Event Name: 2020 WC XCO SERIES - Event #2
When: 14 March 2020
Where: Rhebokskloof, Western Cape
Category: MTB

14 March sees the second event in the Western Cape XCO series, brought to you by WP MTB'ing, proudly supported by TYGERBERG MTB Club, take place at the beautiful Rhebokskloof.

The trails of Rhebokskloof played host to a number of XCO races in the past, and the organizers will once again make sure they bring all participants a challenging, yet enjoyable route, with loads of singletrack and rock features on hand.

The event caters for all age categories, from nippers, right up to masters, and is most surely not just aimed at the top end of the field. Actually, the first event at Bloemendal Wine Estate, had the biggest Masters Category field to date, which is testiment that even among the bald and grey haired, there are many who embrace the thrill of racing.

Despite being a hard workout, it is short in duration and riders get to recover quite quickly, vs the other disciplines such as Marathon events which keeps you in the saddle much longer. There is a huge fun element in lap-racing, and offers riders a challenging experience, but also one with great reward.

The course provides a number of viewing points for spectators, as they support their friends and family, who have to work their way up and down a 5 km course, for a number of laps (depending on category).

As per all the XCO courses, there are a handful of technical features, such as a rock gardens, or a step down, BUT there are B lines around these, which will not cost you much more than 4 or 5 seconds, if that.

Try something different and challenge yourself to see if you can better your own lap times, which are available immediately after each age category's event.
